On the chance that you missed it, I want to call to your attention an excellent article with the above title written by noted political observer Peggy Noonan in a recent edition of The Wall Street Journal. While I happen to totally agree with the conclusions expressed by Noonan, it is my opinion that she hits the nail on the head relative to President Barack Obama’s political long-term viability.
Take a look at her WSJ opinion piece:
Since the publication of Noonan’s work, the growing fiasco of a job offer to Cong. Joe Sestak (D-PA) by ex-President Bill Clinton at White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s urging, has broken into full bloom. While I believe that illegal action took place, I suspect that this skullduggery will be swept under the rug by Obama’s Justice Department.
This bit of political theatre could be the last straw with the voting public as far as President Barack Obama’s creditability and pledge of transparency is concerned. I see the escalating possibility of a one-term Presidency for the practitioners of Chicago-style politics. As of today, President Obama has precious little creditability with the American voting public.
